“It is a good thing for the Cambodian media sector, which has a well-established media professionally and accurately covering the real estate sector and the Cambodia’s economy, which is essential for investors to analyze and do business in Cambodia,” Mr. Kanharith.

“In Cambodia’s media sector, we lack the depth of analytical information because most journalists work for 20 to 30 years and they still write ordinary news, so if Propertyarea.asia is able to write a good analysis, it will be a good thing. I will check that information and if good, I will ask for cooperation,” he added.
